Tarot Card of the Day

King of Swords


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Traditionally, representing the energy of a King, this masculine energy form is The Adjudicator, the wise judge or mediator. He helps parties in conflict discover common ground and build upon it, and guides societies to see their greater good. His archetype is Solomon, ancient lawgiver and philosopher of the Old Testament. Sometimes appearing cool and detached, he can be misunderstood as not caring.

But emotional displays are just not his medium, nor is he moved by appeals to sympathy or pity. With the philosophical overview that comes from long experience, he listens deeply, watches closely and speaks last. In the end, his even-handedness and objectivity earn him the respect he receives from his community, and those who cannot work out their problems come to him voluntarily for advice.

Occasionally this man is subtly detailed to imply that he is a woman in male armor. If you notice this theme in your deck, it is a reference to Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans, archetype of a devout and inspired woman warrior, who was mystically led to abandon her social role to defend what she saw as the greater good. Although she was martyred young, her model crystallizes the message that sometimes the good of the whole is more important than the good of the individual, and in that case, even if you lose, you win just for being there.

Love Tarot Card of the Day

The Wheel of Fortune


Today, the truth is told and clears up a situation that has hung on and on. Take direct action now to clear up something that should have been handled long ago. The Wheel of Fortune selected you because you need to know that some parts of the conditions were out of your control. Some events are not the result of something you did. You do have control over how you deal with matters now.

Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

The Chariot


The Chariot shows that you’re rolling toward a major sexual goal today, willing to forego just about anything and everything else to have that one big O! The thing is, who are you willing to trample over to get there? This card can be a sign to slow down just a bit, because while sex is fun, it shouldn’t be your number one focus right now. You don’t have to come to a complete stop, but pulling back on the reins just a bit will give you the clarity you need to make sure you’re making wise sexual decisions.

Your Earth Sky News for April 25 – A word about the moon’s distance tonight

ou know the moon changes its distance from Earth continually. It must, since the orbit of the moon is not a perfect circle; instead, it’s an ellipse, like a circle someone sat down on. The moon was last at perigee – its closest point to Earth for this month – on April 20. So on the date of the article you’re reading now – April 25, 2018 – and into early May, the moon’s distance from Earth is steadily increasing. It’ll continue increasing until our companion world reaches apogee – its farthest point for the month – on May 6.

Moon’s distance at April 20 perigee: 229,108 miles or 368,714 km

Moon’s distance at May 6 apogee: 251,318 miles or 404,457 km

Separation: 22,210 miles or 35,743 km

The moon will reach mean distance of 238,855 miles (384,400 km) on April 28, 2018.

Click here to find out the moon’s present distance.

Tonight’s moon is still in the constellation Leo the Lion, as shown on the chart below.

 In 2018, the largest separation between lunar perigee and apogee happened in January.

January 1 closest perigee of 2018 = 221,559 miles or 356,565 km

January 15 farthest apogee of 2018 = 252,565 miles or 406,464 km

Separation: 31,006 miles or 49,899 km

Throughout the year, the separation between perigee and apogee varies from a maximum of about 31,00 miles (50,000 km) to a minimum of approximately 21,000 miles (34,000 km). The illustration below helps to explain why.

When the moon’s perigee-apogee line points toward the sun, as it does at A and C in the diagram, the moon’s orbit is maximally eccentric (oblong), which means a closer perigee distance yet a more distant apogee. Hence, the separation between perigee and apogee is especially profound. The perigee-apogee line points toward the sun in cycles of about 206 days (7 lunar months).

On the other hand, when the moon’s perigee-apogee line makes a right angle with the Earth-sun line, as at B in the diagram, the moon’s eccentricity is at a minimum (closest to circular). That gives us a farther perigee distance yet closer apogee distance, which means a minimal separation between perigee and apogee (B in diagram). The period of time from A to B (or B to C) in the diagram is about 103 days (3 1/2 lunar months).

his year’s 14 perigees and 13 apogees via John Walker’s Lunar Perigee and Apogee Calculator,

The moon’s orbit is closer to being a circle than the above diagram suggests, but the exaggeration helps to clarify. The moon is closest to Earth in its orbit at perigee and farthest away at apogee. Image via NASA.

This illustration is closer to the actual shape of the moon’s orbit around Earth. It’s not a perfect circle, but it is very nearly circular, as the above diagram shows. Diagram by Brian Koberlein.

Bottom line: The moon was closest to Earth April 20. It’ll be farthest from Earth May 6. The moon on April 25, 2018, is a little closer than its average distance from Earth.

Aries

Aries
Aries

Things are really heating up in your career or regarding your responsibilities, dear Aries. Your ambitions to meet or exceed a goal are going strong, and the pressure is on as Mars and Pluto align at the top of your solar chart. You want to do things your way, and you can be quite masterful in a leadership role now, although this is not without its potential problems. You seem to have extra courage to reach the top. Try not to wear yourself out in the process! This is a powerful time for making your mark and going after your goals with gusto. For some, this can be a time of intensity in your career or with your reputation. You might feel scrutinized, but feedback may very well fuel your ambition to improve. Taking your ego out of the equation can be most helpful now, although not very easy! Try to top your own previous performance rather than worrying too much about what others are doing. This can be an excellent time to approach a project in an entirely new way or to begin a new, ambitious project. If you channel your energy well, you can get a whole lot done, particularly when it comes to revitalizing something important to you. Try not to waste this opportunity on battles and frustrations.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Mars and Pluto align and harmonize with your sign today, dear Taurus, and you might consider this a power boost. You’re in a stronger position to go after what you want. You might discover or develop a personal interest or course of study with this energy. It’s a fine time for promoting yourself or your work as well as for learning or advancing in your trade. For some, a compelling experience may happen now that changes your perspective. The goal should be to purge and let go, responsibly, if you’re seeking out or defending a truth today. While this can be a strong time for getting an answer, things can get heated and intense pretty quickly, so it’s important to be mindful of where you put your energy. Similarly, stubbornness can be a positive when it involves working towards an important goal, and counter-productive when you shut yourself down entirely to possible alternatives. Watch for over-defending an opinion. It can be a good time for making significant changes to educational, legal, and travel plans, or for building brand new ones based on newly discovered passions.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

You’re in an excellent position to get to the bottom of a matter today, dear Gemini. Mars and Pluto aligning in your solar eighth house suggests profound emotions, intensity in a relationship, or the need to make significant changes. You can be extremely focused when it comes to eliminating something unhealthy from your life or uncovering important truths. It’s a powerful time to break free from a bad habit, and intimate relationships can turn a corner and transform now. If you’ve been frustrated with a situation, it may reach a head, and you’ll want to do something about it, particularly if you’ve been over-attached to a person or situation. You may decide to commit to a lifestyle change based on current circumstances in your life. There is bravery about what you are prepared to face, but you may push things too far. Financial pressures are possible now, making it necessary to identify areas that need to change. Relationships can really heat up, and issues of trust can be in strong focus.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

There is intensity in relationships now, dear Cancer, with Mars and Pluto joining forces in the sign opposite yours. Something has to change, and it’s best to recognize this and work with the energy rather than fight it. You are attracting intense energy into your life through your relationships. It can be a time of fierce competition or difficult people trying to get the upper hand in your life for some of you. Issues of trust may be at the root of conflicts or reunions. However, any disputes between you and someone close to you that have been stewing for some time can emerge now and demand action, and avoidance isn’t an option! Frustrations and difficulties can escalate quickly, mainly because the mood is dense, sensitive, and complex. There may be some tough decision-making or pressure that forces an issue. Aim to be strong within yourself so that you can project this strength outward, as people around you can be trying to get their way or could be more forceful and assertive than you.

Leo

Leo
Leo

There is powerful energy in your solar chart related to the areas of work, service, and/or health and self-care efforts, dear Leo, as Mars and Pluto align today. Changes are essential, and while tension can run high, this can help push you to new heights.The determination to meet or beat a goal is strong, perhaps to obsessive levels! You might decide to eliminate habits in your routine that are counter-productive so that you can focus on those that serve your greater goals. Watch for power struggles with others, as the general atmosphere today inclines people to extremes in their attempts to gain some control over their own lives. If you let frustrations overwhelm you, you are wasting this powerful energy that is best harnessed and channeled into productive work and goal-setting.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Passions and ambitions intensify now with Mars conjunct Pluto today, dear Virgo. Fortunately, this alignment occurs in harmony with your sign, and this helps you make the most of it. You can become very single-minded now, and if you channel this well, you can move mountains. Where extremes are not appropriate and possibly destructive, they should be avoided. You may have the chance to zero in on a problem or perplexing matter now, and this tunnel vision can help or hinder you, depending on how you decide to manage it. Obsessive thinking is not going to do much more than stress you out. However, if you can identify the deeper problem that is driving any compulsive behavior or thinking today, then you also have a chance to face your fears and do something about them. You may experience a strong desire to gain more control over your life, and you’re ready to go out on a limb now.

Libra

Libra
Libra

There is intensity brewing in your personal life now as Mars and Pluto come together at the bottom of your solar chart, dear Libra. You may be dealing with issues of trust, or complicated emotions are in focus. You may get the chance to channel excess energy into a project around the home or for/with family, and you can be determined to make a difference or a significant change or transformation. The focus should be on renovation, whether this is literal or figurative. This Mars-Pluto aspect can challenge you to confront, manage, and handle emerging issues that have been buried, swept under the carpet, or otherwise hidden. Avoid the pitfall of expecting immediate changes and results. Aim to start working on problem areas now, and avoid going head to head with people over superficial issues, as this will get you nowhere. Patience and deliberate action will reward you.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, come together today, dear Scorpio, and this is a powerful combination of energies that brings a feeling of urgency to your life. You are not afraid to stir up some controversy now, and your manner can be quite provocative. There can be a tendency to push too far or to test yourself and your limits. You might be thinking of something obsessively. Keep in mind that gaining more control over your life doesn’t mean knowing all or controlling others, but is about managing your own behavior and actions. Channeling this energy well, you can also be highly productive when it comes to taking action on matters that you’ve previously only been thinking about. You can find yourself thoroughly absorbed in a pet project or with studies and ideas, and ambitiously chasing a goal. Your powers of persuasion are even stronger than usual now.

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Mars aligns with Pluto in your resources sector today, dear Sagittarius, and there can be intensity revolving around a money matter or question of values. You may need to make a decision or a significant change. Emphasis should be on turning a situation around, and knocking something down and rebuilding may be the ticket. Draw on your determination to make improvements. This is an excellent time to eliminate expenses and to rework a budget. Business matters can benefit as you have a real sense of what truly matters, and you’re better at parting with those things you no longer need. There may be some power struggles with others if you feel undervalued, however. If you’re getting frustrated or angry too quickly, consider that gaining more control over your life and your material resources may be at the root, since you don’t want to feel at anyone’s mercy. What you make, own, and believe in can be sensitive topics today, but you can also discover a whole lot about yourself and your fears if you explore these things more deeply.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

Mars and Pluto align in your sign today, dear Capricorn, and this can be a time of great personal passion, power, ambition, and influence. You might want to aim to use these powers constructively and enjoy the courage to meet and then beat your goals, but do watch for a tendency to come on a little too strong or to push yourself too hard. This can also be a time when people are looking to you to lead. You can feel super-motivated to reach a personal goal. It may be empowering to embrace your desire to go after what you want. It’s a day for having a huge say in what others think of you, as the power to shape your image is strong. You can come to sudden insights that help you do so. Work on self-improvement and self-control for amazing results now.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Today’s energies are intense as Mars and Pluto align, dear Aquarius, and this may point to a personal dilemma or challenging decision. Watch for deflecting the blame or tense behavior with others. Aim to get in touch with deep desires and confront them. There can be a lot going on beneath the surface today, and there can be some fixation on past events, guilty feelings, or missed or lost opportunities. Buried or hidden matter can emerge, possibly in a disruptive way. Self-honesty is essential to manage your emotions and move forward feeling refreshed and purged. If you find yourself obsessing over past mistakes or otherwise attracted to things that you know have the power to bring you down, try to pull yourself out of it. The focus now should be on letting go and releasing rather than building up more frustrations and resentments. This energy can point to intense, exciting connections, personal revelations, and projects that motivate and thrill you.

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

A Mars-Pluto alignment occurs today, dear Pisces, and the day is likely to be on the intense side. Something in your life is in need of an overhaul, and the good news is that you have the courage to take action! A major project can be all-consuming now. Tensions with a friend or competitor can rise, however, as feelings can be complicated and interactions can be intense. You could be in the position to make changes to your circle of friends, and decisions can be tough. However, there is a “cleaning up” energy with us now that ultimately brings us to a stronger place. Outworn attitudes and activities that no longer serve you well may need to be left behind. Strong feelings for or about a friend, group, long-term goal, or cause can be in focus. Although you may have a strong desire to know the truth of a matter, try not to push too far. Power doesn’t come from knowing all, but rather from knowing yourself and being honest with yourself.

If You Were Born Today, April 25

 

If You Were Born Today, April 25

You are a sensual, intuitive, and emotional person who is sometimes misunderstood, generally because you don’t easily let others in on your deepest thoughts and feelings! However, you are very much respected. You tend to think before you speak or write. A calm exterior can hide some nervousness and worry, as well as an intensely emotional nature. In your work, you are a perfectionist. Famous people born today: Ella Fitzgerald, Renee Zellweger, Al Pacino, Jason Lee.

Your Birthday Year Forecast

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Until November, you continue to have a strong, protective, and stabilizing influence with you. It helps you stay on track and meet your responsibilities. Your popularity tends to be strong, and your leadership skills are valued. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some manner for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come.

Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money.

Your ambition is stimulated now, and you are determined to meet or exceed your goals. You can bring great discipline and meaning to your life this year. You might totally revise an important project or area of your life, or you could be bent on getting rid of something in your life so that you can move forward. The tendency to be too willful this year should probably be avoided. You should also watch for overdoing to the point of exhaustion. This can be a compulsive time when power struggles are more likely. On the other hand, it can be a time when you enjoy a strong sense of purposefulness, focus, and determination.

The year ahead can be an ambitious time and a supportive period for reaching your goals. You might solve a long-standing problem, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden.

You might experience some difficulties and delays in communications in the period ahead. It’s a strong year for recognizing flaws and errors. As long as you don’t forget the “big picture”, you could find you are motivated to channel your mental energy into tasks that require structured and organized thought, tackling projects that you may have found too mundane or downright boring in other years. It’s a strong year for polishing your skills and formal learning.

You are determined and focused in the year ahead, and you can move mountains in important areas of your life. As well, this can be a wonderful year for meeting new people or more thoroughly enjoying your current friendships. It’s a powerful year for relationships and excellent for making lifestyle changes.

2018 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2019 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.

From Astrology Cafe

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

You may be returning to a problem or obstacle that you first faced in March today, dear Aries, now equipped with a little more information, but perhaps still frustrated by the matter! Mercury in your sign forms a square to Saturn, and this can feel like a test of a plan or your patience. There can be some tensions related to a career or business matter now, or you could be finally resolving a sticky problem that surfaced last month and losing a lot of time and energy to it. It’s better to try not to take criticism to heart, keeping in mind that people can be more negative than usual. Even so, the best way to handle things is to take an honest look at vulnerable areas in your life or weak points in your plans and consider ways to improve them. This is, in fact, a good time to make small edits. Large ones, though, not so much!

 

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

A problem or challenging decision that first emerged last month can now come to a head, dear Taurus. By the end of the day, you’re likely to be able to put it behind you. A Mercury-Saturn aspect that first formed in March and then in early April forms again for the final time in this set, and it’s time to get over a hump. Be aware that there is a tendency for small things to go wrong and misunderstandings to occur in the meantime. Insecurity may be behind a generally negative or critical atmosphere. The best way to handle criticism is to maintain a healthy level of detachment from it so that you can pick and choose what may (and may not) be relevant to you. Make it a priority to get back on track.

 

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

Today, you could be finally getting past a problem that first surfaced in the first half of March, dear Gemini. Nevertheless, you can have difficulties getting where you want to go today as Mercury and Saturn form a challenging square aspect. This influence can also present challenges or blocks to your communications, and misunderstandings or delays may result. While frustrating, little problems now can lead to the making of constructive changes that ultimately strengthen you. The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, encouraging you to lay low and stick with the tried and true just for now. Conserving energy makes sense at this point in the lunar cycle.

 

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Today and tomorrow, you may feel you are getting over a hump, dear Cancer, although there can be some delays or misunderstandings to wade through in the process. A Mercury-Saturn square today brings a recurring problem back to life, but this time around, you have all the tools to resolve it. While people around you may seem to feel threatened by change, this is not the time to resist those things that lead to growth and improvement. Tomorrow’s Mars-Pluto alignment attests to this. It’s about recognizing the need to push beyond the usual limits or barriers and dare to do things differently. Some tension in a close relationship is possible now, and you could have a fight or flight reaction to a situation with someone. This can be an excellent time for joining forces with a significant someone and accomplishing wonderful things, but if power dynamics are difficult, this can be a tipping point.

Leo

Leo
Leo

A recurring problem can come into sharper focus today, dear Leo, but you now seem to have the information you need to put this problem behind you. Nevertheless, tension is building today. Your desire to expand your mind and learn through experience seems at odds with your current goals or duties, which are demanding and leave little time for such explorations. Today’s Mercury-Saturn square can magnify a whole slew of small problems, and this can be frustrating, but once handled, you’re likely to feel freer and a bit wiser, too! A Mars-Pluto alignment is approaching, and this can serve to intensify your ambitions related to achieving your work and/or health goals. This passion can be useful up to a point, after which you may be pushing things too far. It can be difficult to know your limits now, but it makes sense to watch for signs of excess.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Mercury forms a square to Saturn today, dear Virgo, and this can pull up a recurring or unresolved problem from last month for review. This time around, you’re more inclined to find answers to your dilemmas, although you may lose some time dealing with picky details today, which can be frustrating. It’s a good idea to watch what and how you communicate today, as misunderstandings are likely. Try to stay on top of things so that you are in control of problems rather than allow problems to take control of you and your day. Criticisms can cut deeper than usual today, so be sure you are not guilty of dealing them. A Mars-Pluto aspect is approaching, raising the bar of intensity today and tomorrow. There can be the bubbling up of tension now, but the potential of release, too, particularly on creative levels. This is a breakthrough period for moving on.

 

Libra

Libra
Libra

An issue from March can come up for further review today, dear Libra, and while you can spend quite a bit of energy and time on resolving a problem now, you may come out of the process quite a bit wiser! This is due to a Mercury-Saturn square that first surfaced in March and then recurred in early April finalizing today. Negative thinking and communicating are potential downfalls with this aspect prominent now, and while expectations could do with some taming, the situation is unlikely to be as dire as it appears at the moment! With a Mars-Pluto alignment on its way, you’re likely to feel some emotional tension building. This aspect is sure to reveal some of the dirt you may have swept under the rug, but while it can be initially uncomfortable facing certain truths, the potential for release and relief is strong now.

 

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Unfinished business can emerge today, dear Scorpio, slowing you down or disrupting your schedule. The good news is that you’re unlikely to be wasting energy on trying to resolve a problem that remains an issue. Solutions are imminent! Delays involving commuting or communications can be prominent today, and frustrating, too, but you can take heart that breakthroughs are on their way. Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, are moving towards alignment, and there can be quite a bit of tension building. You want –or need– to make changes, and this is the time to do so. Be sure, though, that you’re making a choice, not just a reaction. You may be feeling pressure now, which can skew your decisions.

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Energies with you today are somewhat complicated and intense, dear Sagittarius. If you’ve been avoiding a matter, trying to sweep it under the carpet, it’s likely to surface anyhow, perhaps in disruptive ways. This is nothing you can’t handle, and in fact, it’s precisely what you need to manage so that you can move on. You can feel pressured or driven to deal with finances or possessions, and if you use this energy well, you can accomplish a great deal. However, you can just as easily go overboard with a Mars-Pluto alignment pending, so look for cues that suggest you’re taking something too seriously now.

 

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

There can be some pressures to deal with today, dear Capricorn. For one, Mercury and Saturn connect via a square. This aspect first formed on March 11th, then formed again on April 5th while Mercury was retrograde. While it’s a tense aspect that can point to blocks communicating and commuting, you’re likely to solve a problem or get over a hurdle that’s been a long time coming! For another, Mars and Pluto are reaching an alignment in your sign, exact tomorrow. Today, you may feel some intensity building. You can feel pressured to make a change, and you’re likely to feel extremely dissatisfied with the status quo now. Use this intense energy well — as fuel to make important, necessary, and positive changes.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

With a Mercury-Saturn square active today, dear Aquarius, there can be blocks of communication or errors to deal with. Life may not go smoothly for you just for now, but the good news is that you may have the information you need to finally resolve a problem. As well, you’re a little wiser for it! A Mars-Pluto alignment is pending, and while it’s only exact tomorrow, it’s bound to influence you today. This can point to a matter that you’ve kept to yourself or under wraps reaching a boiling point. You might use this intense energy to break free from a negative situation or to put something behind you. Certainly, you have the determination right now.

 

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

There can be some negativity affecting our interactions and decisions, dear Pisces, with a Mercury-Saturn aspect active today. You may need to resolve an irritating problem before you can do what you want to do, but while you may lose time and energy on problem-solving, you’re likely to gain some experience and knowledge for future reference. In fact, you can learn a lot from the events of the day. You may find that people are on edge, though, particularly in your social circle. Or, your feelings for someone or about an ongoing situation are problematic today. A Mars-Pluto alignment can bring things to a head with the chance to make a fresh start.

General Horoscope

It might seem as if we are trying to solve an all-too-familiar problem once again as cerebral Mercury squares taskmaster Saturn for the third time since early March. We insist on moving into new territory while Mercury is visiting pioneering Aries, but we must first demonstrate our worthiness to authoritative Saturn. Meanwhile, the efficient Virgo Moon encourages practicality and enables us to concentrate on those things that matter most.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

You don’t know how many times you must succeed before you are taken seriously. You may be at your wit’s end today yet you’re willing to go around once again, hoping to demonstrate your determination to reach your goal. Rather than looking at a current setback as a sign of inadequacy, change your attitude now and be thankful you are being given a reason to improve your skills and fine-tune your plans. Zig Ziglar wrote, “The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.”

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

You don’t like hearing negative feedback unless it’s constructive enough to help you be more successful. It’s especially unnerving when you receive criticism from a secondhand source. You wonder why your critic doesn’t have enough respect for you to simply talk with you directly. You may just walk away from the entire situation because you don’t want to engage in adolescent-like emotional games now. The trick is to set an outstanding example by letting the results of your actions speak for you.

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Your hopes for travel in the not-too-distant future may be dashed today as conversations with your friends go awry. Performing to very high standards isn’t enough to convince others how seriously you take your commitments because behind-the-scenes political maneuvering might have already marginalized your position. Nevertheless, backing down now would be a sign of weakness. Give it your absolute best. There is a distinct possibility that your success story could overcome all odds.

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

You are motivated to be understood by everyone at work today. In fact, your need for fair-and-balanced communication might inspire you to try even harder now to get your message across. You can feel an inescapable tension turning into a problem you can’t ignore. You may temporarily lose an ally in the process, but don’t waste precious energy maintaining your social relationships when there is more important work to be done. If you pass Saturn’s current exam with flying colors, your lost friends will return before you even realize they were gone.

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You may be wearing your practical shoes today, but your clothing choices will not prevent you from dreaming. Losing yourself in a magical world of fantasy enables you to reappear a bit later, ready for another round with reality. Thankfully, your hard work can lead to significant progress now. But you must address the conflict between your fiery enthusiasm and the frustrating limitation of your resources. Roman historian Sallust wrote, “Harmony makes small things grow, lack of it makes great things delay.”

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You will likely have a day of extremes, depending upon your attitude. You could experience an annoying setback that sends you down a rabbit hole of self-doubt. If your anxiety level is high, it may be difficult to work your way back into a healthy space. However, this could be an incredibly productive phase if you choose to apply your energy to conquer whatever obstacles appear in your path. Psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.”

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

Hiding your feelings might actually be a smart idea today as long as you’re willing to address them at a later time. You may feel isolated from your closest friends, but this is only a temporary situation. Unfortunately, by dwelling on your emotions you could inadvertently extend your current loneliness, turning it into a deeper state of pessimism. Fortunately, your perceptions are sharp and your logic is sound. Instead of mourning over what’s gone wrong, channel your intensity toward accomplishing something right. Small steps lead to significant changes.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Your network of friends and associates can be a pillar of support today, especially if a pet project of yours has run into difficulty. Your immediate reaction may be one of defeat, but this is the least sensible response. Although holding on to your dreams is motivational, there is little room for idealism now because you have specific tasks that must be handled sooner than later. An objective approach to the obstacles you currently face enables you to pinpoint the most obvious problem and get to work fixing it. Thomas Carlyle wrote, “No pressure, no diamonds.”

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

You’re not particularly appreciative of anyone who pops your bubble of happiness today. However, you may owe more gratitude to this messenger of truth than you realize. People tend to feed your optimism with their confidence, which can backfire if practical reality doesn’t support all your positive thinking. It’s better to discern an unpleasant truth while you can still do something about it than to go on believing that a fantasy is real. Author Gregory David Roberts wrote, “Give me an honest frown over a false smile, any day.”

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

People sometimes see you as the undisputed champion of making plans that work. In fact, they might look to you for guidance when developing their own strategies for success. However, before you start any scheming at all, you must first be satisfied that the designated goal is the most sensible one. Stepping through the process of validating someone’s intentions may be a gift you can give that’s more valuable than you’ll ever know. Let your light shine so brightly that others can see their way out of the dark.

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

There are plenty of ideas running around in your head now, but you cannot pursue them unless there’s enough time in your day. Unfortunately, you might already feel as if you are overcommitted. Although you can’t easily pare back your obligations, you can make your future brighter by refusing to add more to your calendar. If your current level of busyness increased over the past couple of months, rest assured that your schedule will become more manageable in the days ahead. Leo Tolstoy wrote, “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

When you can’t see around the next bend, it’s tougher to make decisions about your future. It’s as if a filter has been placed on your mind’s eye that prevents you from achieving the high resolution you need in order to make the best choices now. Ironically, the simple act of backing off for a couple of days will drastically change your perspective, bringing you the clarity you seek in order to set priorities for the weeks and months ahead. Ironically, the current distance makes your eyesight sharper.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, April 25

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

You may be returning to a problem or obstacle that you first faced in March today, dear Aries, now equipped with a little more information, but perhaps still frustrated by the matter! Mercury in your sign forms a square to Saturn, and this can feel like a test of a plan or your patience. There can be some tensions related to a career or business matter now, or you could be finally resolving a sticky problem that surfaced last month and losing a lot of time and energy to it. It’s better to try not to take criticism to heart, keeping in mind that people can be more negative than usual. Even so, the best way to handle things is to take an honest look at vulnerable areas in your life or weak points in your plans and consider ways to improve them. This is, in fact, a good time to make small edits. Large ones, though, not so much!

 

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

A problem or challenging decision that first emerged last month can now come to a head, dear Taurus. By the end of the day, you’re likely to be able to put it behind you. A Mercury-Saturn aspect that first formed in March and then in early April forms again for the final time in this set, and it’s time to get over a hump. Be aware that there is a tendency for small things to go wrong and misunderstandings to occur in the meantime. Insecurity may be behind a generally negative or critical atmosphere. The best way to handle criticism is to maintain a healthy level of detachment from it so that you can pick and choose what may (and may not) be relevant to you. Make it a priority to get back on track.

 

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

Today, you could be finally getting past a problem that first surfaced in the first half of March, dear Gemini. Nevertheless, you can have difficulties getting where you want to go today as Mercury and Saturn form a challenging square aspect. This influence can also present challenges or blocks to your communications, and misunderstandings or delays may result. While frustrating, little problems now can lead to the making of constructive changes that ultimately strengthen you. The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, encouraging you to lay low and stick with the tried and true just for now. Conserving energy makes sense at this point in the lunar cycle.

 

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Today and tomorrow, you may feel you are getting over a hump, dear Cancer, although there can be some delays or misunderstandings to wade through in the process. A Mercury-Saturn square today brings a recurring problem back to life, but this time around, you have all the tools to resolve it. While people around you may seem to feel threatened by change, this is not the time to resist those things that lead to growth and improvement. Tomorrow’s Mars-Pluto alignment attests to this. It’s about recognizing the need to push beyond the usual limits or barriers and dare to do things differently. Some tension in a close relationship is possible now, and you could have a fight or flight reaction to a situation with someone. This can be an excellent time for joining forces with a significant someone and accomplishing wonderful things, but if power dynamics are difficult, this can be a tipping point.

Leo

Leo
Leo

A recurring problem can come into sharper focus today, dear Leo, but you now seem to have the information you need to put this problem behind you. Nevertheless, tension is building today. Your desire to expand your mind and learn through experience seems at odds with your current goals or duties, which are demanding and leave little time for such explorations. Today’s Mercury-Saturn square can magnify a whole slew of small problems, and this can be frustrating, but once handled, you’re likely to feel freer and a bit wiser, too! A Mars-Pluto alignment is approaching, and this can serve to intensify your ambitions related to achieving your work and/or health goals. This passion can be useful up to a point, after which you may be pushing things too far. It can be difficult to know your limits now, but it makes sense to watch for signs of excess.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Mercury forms a square to Saturn today, dear Virgo, and this can pull up a recurring or unresolved problem from last month for review. This time around, you’re more inclined to find answers to your dilemmas, although you may lose some time dealing with picky details today, which can be frustrating. It’s a good idea to watch what and how you communicate today, as misunderstandings are likely. Try to stay on top of things so that you are in control of problems rather than allow problems to take control of you and your day. Criticisms can cut deeper than usual today, so be sure you are not guilty of dealing them. A Mars-Pluto aspect is approaching, raising the bar of intensity today and tomorrow. There can be the bubbling up of tension now, but the potential of release, too, particularly on creative levels. This is a breakthrough period for moving on.

 

Libra

Libra
Libra

An issue from March can come up for further review today, dear Libra, and while you can spend quite a bit of energy and time on resolving a problem now, you may come out of the process quite a bit wiser! This is due to a Mercury-Saturn square that first surfaced in March and then recurred in early April finalizing today. Negative thinking and communicating are potential downfalls with this aspect prominent now, and while expectations could do with some taming, the situation is unlikely to be as dire as it appears at the moment! With a Mars-Pluto alignment on its way, you’re likely to feel some emotional tension building. This aspect is sure to reveal some of the dirt you may have swept under the rug, but while it can be initially uncomfortable facing certain truths, the potential for release and relief is strong now.

 

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Unfinished business can emerge today, dear Scorpio, slowing you down or disrupting your schedule. The good news is that you’re unlikely to be wasting energy on trying to resolve a problem that remains an issue. Solutions are imminent! Delays involving commuting or communications can be prominent today, and frustrating, too, but you can take heart that breakthroughs are on their way. Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, are moving towards alignment, and there can be quite a bit of tension building. You want –or need– to make changes, and this is the time to do so. Be sure, though, that you’re making a choice, not just a reaction. You may be feeling pressure now, which can skew your decisions.

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Energies with you today are somewhat complicated and intense, dear Sagittarius. If you’ve been avoiding a matter, trying to sweep it under the carpet, it’s likely to surface anyhow, perhaps in disruptive ways. This is nothing you can’t handle, and in fact, it’s precisely what you need to manage so that you can move on. You can feel pressured or driven to deal with finances or possessions, and if you use this energy well, you can accomplish a great deal. However, you can just as easily go overboard with a Mars-Pluto alignment pending, so look for cues that suggest you’re taking something too seriously now.

 

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

There can be some pressures to deal with today, dear Capricorn. For one, Mercury and Saturn connect via a square. This aspect first formed on March 11th, then formed again on April 5th while Mercury was retrograde. While it’s a tense aspect that can point to blocks communicating and commuting, you’re likely to solve a problem or get over a hurdle that’s been a long time coming! For another, Mars and Pluto are reaching an alignment in your sign, exact tomorrow. Today, you may feel some intensity building. You can feel pressured to make a change, and you’re likely to feel extremely dissatisfied with the status quo now. Use this intense energy well — as fuel to make important, necessary, and positive changes.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

With a Mercury-Saturn square active today, dear Aquarius, there can be blocks of communication or errors to deal with. Life may not go smoothly for you just for now, but the good news is that you may have the information you need to finally resolve a problem. As well, you’re a little wiser for it! A Mars-Pluto alignment is pending, and while it’s only exact tomorrow, it’s bound to influence you today. This can point to a matter that you’ve kept to yourself or under wraps reaching a boiling point. You might use this intense energy to break free from a negative situation or to put something behind you. Certainly, you have the determination right now.

 

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

There can be some negativity affecting our interactions and decisions, dear Pisces, with a Mercury-Saturn aspect active today. You may need to resolve an irritating problem before you can do what you want to do, but while you may lose time and energy on problem-solving, you’re likely to gain some experience and knowledge for future reference. In fact, you can learn a lot from the events of the day. You may find that people are on edge, though, particularly in your social circle. Or, your feelings for someone or about an ongoing situation are problematic today. A Mars-Pluto alignment can bring things to a head with the chance to make a fresh start.

If You Were Born Today, April 24

 

 

If You Were Born Today, April 24

You are a determined person and you intuitively know that with patience, you can accomplish anything you set out to do. You easily earn respect from others around you, due in part to your regal manner. Your family is extremely important to you, and many of your values are quite traditional, which keeps you grounded and responsible. However, you are unafraid of embracing the new, even if  you do so slowly. Famous people born today: Shirley MacLaine, Barbara Streisand, Kelly Clarkson.

Your Birthday Year Forecast

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Until November, you continue to have a strong, protective, and stabilizing influence with you. It helps you stay on track and meet your responsibilities. Your popularity tends to be strong, and your leadership skills are valued. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some manner for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come.

Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money.

Your ambition is stimulated now, and you are determined to meet or exceed your goals. You can bring great discipline and meaning to your life this year. You might totally revise an important project or area of your life, or you could be bent on getting rid of something in your life so that you can move forward. The tendency to be too willful this year should probably be avoided. You should also watch for overdoing to the point of exhaustion. This can be a compulsive time when power struggles are more likely. On the other hand, it can be a time when you enjoy a strong sense of purposefulness, focus, and determination.

The year ahead can be an ambitious time and a supportive period for reaching your goals. You might solve a long-standing problem, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden.

You might experience some difficulties and delays in communications in the period ahead. It’s a strong year for recognizing flaws and errors. As long as you don’t forget the “big picture”, you could find you are motivated to channel your mental energy into tasks that require structured and organized thought, tackling projects that you may have found too mundane or downright boring in other years. It’s a strong year for polishing your skills and formal learning.

You are determined and focused in the year ahead, and you can move mountains in important areas of your life. As well, this can be a wonderful year for meeting new people or more thoroughly enjoying your current friendships. It’s a powerful year for relationships and excellent for making lifestyle changes.

2018 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

2019 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

A Venus-Chiron influence today boosts your feelings, business, and family life. It’s a good time for reconciliation or healing and repairing relationships, as well as judging what you may need. Financial decisions might be made with good results now. For some of you, sharing financial concerns can be comforting or relieving. You may want to make small, desirable changes to your domestic environment with an eye on both comfort and inclusion. Creativity: Good ~ Love: Excellent ~ Business: Good

Get a Jump on Tomorrow,

Your Horoscopes for Wednesday, April 18

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The Sun and Uranus align in your sign, and this brings strong personal energy into your world, dear Aries. In fact, it’s the last time they will meet in Aries before Uranus moves into the sign of Taurus in May. You’re intolerant of limitations and restrictions right now, as you try to break free from those things that are holding you back from growing. You can be excitable and perhaps a little impatient, particularly with rules or impositions. While you can be feeling rebellious now, you put yourself in the very best position if you answer to a genuine need to make progress rather than merely react to what others are doing. Your individuality, uniqueness, and free spirit are all in the spotlight today. You can use this time to make meaningful changes or to break free from a limiting attitude or other such liability. The Moon moves into your communications zone today, stimulating your desire to connect, learn, and chat.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

The Sun and Uranus align in the sign of Aries for the last time before Uranus moves into your sign, dear Taurus. This transit shines a light on what inspires and excites you. Things can happen that feel predestined, out of the blue, or entirely uncanny. Surprises and secrets surfacing now are meant to detach you from elements of your past that have been limiting your growth. If you’re not in touch with your need for change, you might grapple with inner restlessness or touchiness today, and this is a sign to pay attention! Your intuition is trying to tell you something. An awakening or sudden awareness is figuring strongly now, and it’s meant to get you past an obstacle. A private matter might open the doors to a healing process or a new beginning. There can be coincidences or sudden meetings now, and these can change your entire focus. The Moon moves out of your sign today and into your resources sector, and you can feel a strong desire to build or produce something tangible. You crave results!

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

There can be some excitement or surprises today, dear Gemini, and fresh energy is with you for new ideas, insights, and friendships. You might see an association or project in an entirely different light today, and this can be disruptive or exciting, or perhaps a bit of both! The Sun and Uranus meet for the last time in your solar eleventh house, and changes or even radical developments in relationships that occur at this time are likely necessary. Curveballs thrown at you tend to nudge you into new directions. Events can happen now that stimulate new goals, hopes, and ideals. A chance meeting, a new friend, or an epiphany that occurs in a group setting can be catalysts. Disruptions of plans can steer you on a new path and stimulate you to make essential changes. You feel refreshed, even if there is initial disorientation or disruption of plans. You can detach yourself from situations enough to make bold moves or to enjoy yourself more thoroughly without overthinking things today. The Moon moves into your sign, also encouraging a fresh approach and the need for spontaneity.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Unexpected changes today can lead you in new directions, dear Cancer, as the Sun aligns with Uranus at the top of your solar chart for the last time before Uranus moves on from this area of your chart. This yearly alignment is designed to shake things up. You can be hungering for a fresh start or increased freedom. You are slightly more detached than usual when it comes to your work and reputation, and this can lead to bolder moves! Inner stirrings that leave you feeling rebellious against the path you’re currently taking or against authority figures can be intense now. Some of you could be facing a matter that has your reputation going through changes. You don’t want to feel pinned down or restricted today, and your unique approach can stimulate progressive ideas about your life’s direction or goals. You’re reminded of the need to change along with changing times rather than resist those things that help you grow and improve. The Moon moves into your privacy zone today, however, and as the day progresses, you can feel the need to take a break from the routine.

Leo

Leo
Leo

The Sun-Uranus alignment today harmonizes with your sign, dear Leo, and this helps you to work with its progressive energy rather than against it. It’s a highly stimulating influence, and it’s the last yearly Sun-Uranus conjunction in your solar ninth house (Uranus is moving on to your sector of career and reputation starting next month). Today, you’re likely to be feeling both enthusiastic and hopeful about the future. Your belief system is changing, and events that occur now can be catalysts for exploring new ideas. Educational plans might shift, or a sudden opportunity for adventures, travel, or new experiences can arise. For some of you, this can be about meeting a significant other. For others, it’s a mind-opening experience occurring now, or a time of finding inspiration through branching out and exploring places or topics you wouldn’t explore on a regular day. Your enthusiasm is also attracting support or positive attention from others, or your unique ideas, approach, or guidance can be in the spotlight. The Moon moves into your social sector today, also prompting you to reach out and seek the company of others.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Uranus is set to move into your adventure sector next month, dear Virgo, but today, is aligning with the Sun in your intimacy sector, where it’s been transiting for seven years. There can be an eagerness to make profound and long-lasting changes in your personality or lifestyle now. Alternatively, if you’re not in touch with this need for change, you can receive a wake-up call or experience an unexpected event that stimulates the need to change your dependencies or your approach, particularly to people in your life and with money matters. If you’ve been feeling at the mercy of others who seem to be pulling your strings, this is a time you’ll want to break free. It’s an excellent time to overturn expectations and perhaps break some of your usual routines so that you can grow and thrive. Use this energy for a boost of courage to make a change that’s meaningful to you. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, and you are more inclined to take into account your long-term goals and concern yourself with your performance or reputation.

Libra

Libra
Libra

People may be bringing surprises into your life today, dear Libra, or you may awaken to relationship needs as the Sun and Uranus form their yearly alignment in your partnership sector. Either way, you tend to begin fresh on some level in your relationships. You may have a hard time accepting rules and limitations now, or you could find that a partner or special friend is rebelling against you. Unpredictability may be disorienting, but it can also lead to a new understanding of what you need from others and what you’re capable of on your own. Alternatively, through someone else’s input or unpredictability, you may arrive at an exciting new perspective. Outdated ways of relating to others are falling to the side, paving the way for exciting new experiences. Different and unique ways to approach people in your life can emerge. The Moon’s move into harmony with your sign today is a further push towards experiencing new things and enjoying a change of pace.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The long-term transit of routine-bucking Uranus through your sector of routines has been an unusual one, dear Scorpio, and it’s nearing an end. In fact, today’s yearly Sun-Uranus alignment is the last in this area of your chart, and you can feel particularly compelled to make changes. You might consider which elements of your daily life or work and habits are no longer serving you well and put them behind you. Changes in plans today can lead you on the path to discovery of new methods to improve wellness, work, health, and other systems in your life. If you’ve been stifled or confined in your work or restricted from getting out and about, then now is a time for breaking free, being mindful, of course, that you’re not merely reacting or acting on whims. Certainly, if you feel you’ve been slaving away yet enjoying few benefits or little recognition, you might take steps to change these conditions. The Moon moves into your intimacy sector, and as the day advances, you could find that withdrawing or pouring much of your energy into a special pursuit suits you just fine.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

A Sun-Uranus alignment occurring today can awaken you to the need to make changes, grow, and improve, dear Sagittarius. It’s a yearly event, and in the past seven years, this conjunction has occurred in your sector of romance and creativity. Next year, it will center on themes related to work and health, but for now, disruptions, detours, and excitement are directed to matters related to your loves, passions, hobbies, and feelings. You may want to create something new, meet new people, or do something different with a loved one now. Plans seem to change at the very last minute, and this allows for more freeform and inspirational experiences. It’s easier for you than usual to identify where change is necessary instead of resisting it and letting it mess with your life! Romantic and creative matters can be surprising, changeful, and stimulating. You stand out for your unique creations or personality. This is not the time to do the same old things or to approach others in the usual way since opportunities open up as you make changes and breathe fresh life into your projects and relationships.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The desire to grow, improve, and change can be intense today, dear Capricorn, as the Sun and Uranus form their yearly alliance. Today and in the past seven years, this conjunction has been happening in your sector of home and family, and disruptions have been par for the course in your personal and domestic life. This is the last time the Sun and Uranus meet in this area of your chart, and revelations occurring now can be quite significant and hard to dismiss. Disruptions to routines may be necessary in order for your life to move forward in a positive way. This is a time when you find it easier than usual to step outside of your comfort zone, and as you do, you boost your confidence. Falling back on the same old conditioned approaches in relationships will only frustrate you today, so aim to make progress with a new style or plan. This way, you may be breaking out of the mold that others have created for you! The Moon moves into your work and health sector today, turning your attention to the details of your life that need your attention.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Your ruler, Uranus, will be moving into the sign of Taurus in less than a month, dear Aquarius, and this will be a significant shift for you. Today, the Sun and Uranus form their yearly conjunction, the last of which occurring in your communications sector before Uranus makes its big move in May, and there can be some mental excitement now. Partnership matters can be very favorable today and this week, particularly if independence and individuality are emphasized and honored. The focus is on growing and encouraging one another. News you hear or ideas you arrive at now can bring about a new direction or change of plans. Your ideas, advice, or guidance might stand out as particularly unique. This is a wonderful time for new beginnings and fresh starts. You can feel quite inspired to make improvements or to branch out into new projects or making interesting connections. The Moon moves into your creativity sector today, further exciting your senses and stimulating your desire to enjoy life more fully. You’re especially attractive to others now, to boot!

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

The Sun forms its yearly alignment with Uranus in your resources sector today, dear Pisces. This influence activates the need for innovation and inspiration with your business, finances, work, health, and/or talents. It’s a day for embracing change and accepting that unpredictability can sometimes bring exciting new possibilities into your life. Your thinking is progressive and enterprising, and you’re exploring your more unique qualities and talents. The sudden desire for a fancy new item or for new technology in your everyday life that changes your methods or mood is likely. You probably shouldn’t expect things to go as planned today, and while this can be unsettling at first, it can also lead to essential realizations and detours. For some, there can be the desire to unburden yourself of excess possessions or clutter. Circumstances are such that you become especially aware of what you’ve been holding onto both emotionally and physically and how some of this may be holding you back. The Moon’s descent to the bottom of your solar chart today suggests a need to center yourself and draw comfort from familiar faces and places.
